Shelly, the root clipping gives me some issue sometimes too, so I'll be following any clipping comments. I watched a Deva video because the metal clips I have are similar but I get so-so results. Sometimes good, sometimes meh. Especially if the clips fall over while diffusing... I try to clip smaller sections and that helps them stay up.
Can't wait to hear if you get the same awesome results again!! And do share pics, if you have the time. You know we all love to see the beautiful results
